    Cool Guy

    You all remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona , who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb. Well.........


    Oh, there's MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe!

    Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay.

    The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who'd like to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows.

    The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million. Teresa and I adopted a Weimaraner from a Maricopa County shelter two years ago. He was neutered, and current on all shots, in great health, and even had a microchip inserted the day we got him. Cost us $78.

    The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals.

    I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand.

    He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat, and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 - $8 for the Holidays, and plant it later. We have six trees in our yard from the Prison.

    Yup, he was reelected last year with 83% of the vote.
    Now he's in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural, that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement wasn't doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He's kind of a 'Git-R Dun' kind of S heriff.




    Sheriff Joe Arpaio (In Arizona ) who created the ' Tent City Jail':
    He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

    He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights Cut off all but 'G' movies.

    He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

    Then He Started Chain Gan gs For Women So He Wouldn't Get
    Sued For Discrimination.

    He took away cable TV Until he found out there was A Federal Court Order that Required Cable TV For Jails So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again . Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel.

    When asked why the weather channel He Replied, So They Will Know How Hot It's Gonna Be While They Are Working
    ON My Chain Gangs.

    He Cut Off Coffee Since It Has Zero Nutritional Value.

    When the inmates complained, he told them, 'This Isn't The Ritz/Carlton...... If You Don't Like It, Don't Come Back.'

    More On The Arizona Sheriff:

    With Temperatures Being Even Hotter Than Usual In Phoenix (116 Degrees Just Set A New Record), the Associated Press Reports:
    About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire-Surrounded Tent Encampment At The Maricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued
    Pink Boxer Shorts.

    On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached
    138 Degrees Inside The Week Before.

    Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS.

    'It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace,' Said James Zanzot, An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year. 'It's Inhumane.'

    Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic. He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: 'It's 120 Degrees In Iraq And Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear,
    But They Didn't Commit Any Crimes,So Shut Your Mouths!'

    Way To Go, Sheriff!

    Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.

    My hat is off to the man. He runs a prison the way it should be. Dam shame more prisons cannot learn something from him and his administration about running prisons. Its about time that is costs inmates to actaully go to prisons instead of the burden on the state and its tax payers. Way to go Joe you certainly have my approval.
    Fortitude.....The strength to persist...The courage to endure.

    Oh you wouldn't catch those holywood dipshits making a pledge of compliance video to Sheriff Joe. They would be railing like hell against him though.

    And the following is not really aimed at you ar anyone in particular, but I assume you are making a joke about the I pledge video by the top 100 hollytards. I get the joke and I would probably laugh with you except for;

    I am currently quite free. Freer than most people on this planet actually and as it looks today, the last, freest country on Earth. I serve no man, I pledge no allegiance to a man. I took an oath years ago to defend our country and its constitution. I pledge allegiance to that and that alone. I have no religion, believe in no god, so that is all I have. I will not give it up easily. It makes me sick to my stomach to see those who have wonderful riches by the grace of the freedom granted them by nothing more than being born here , or welcomed to this country with open arms, to actually have the guts to stand there and say such crapola.

    If they had stood there and said "they pledge to support Obama", well, that's nothing out of the ordinary for America and its politics. However, they clearly said, "I pledge to serve Obama".....There is something very, very, disturbing and repulsive to me, as a free man.
